I find it highly unlikely that shadow Pokémon will be present, but that'd be so cool. I think the evil team needs to be more bosslike. Let me explain. The bosses in Pokémon right now really only have level advantages. Therefore, beating bosses isn't necessarily a strategy as much is it is trainin. I was thinking that maybe the evil team could have genetically altered Pokémon (like shadow Pokémon) to make them truly bosses. Truly different. So like, maybe you can't catch shadow Pokémon this time around or something. IDK, if there are shadow Pokémon I want to catch them. But the evil team needs to have something you do not.

The only reason I find the Shadow Pokemon centered storyline unlikely is the fact that the bosses in Pokemon Colosseum/XD actually have really powerful Pokemon, and even most of the grunts do. So in order to "follow suit"(if you will), then the grunts in X/Y would have to be similarly powerful, but of course, not so at first, but it would be more exciting if they used more powerful Pokemon.

From Black 2 and White 2, we had Ghetsis as a boss effectively. Remember? Black and White Kyurem? Granted, you would catch a normal Kyurem later down the track and then you could give it those formes again.

Having Pokemon with skills you can't access would be cool, it's kind of common in other games. Kind of like special abilities where when a Fire-type is half killed he gets fired up and gains the Flame Body ability in addition to what he has. Idk.

If they do Shadow Pokemon perhaps the ??? in Corocoro was intentional not to hide the typing but it was telling us they are shadow pokemon...(sure the classification was also missing...)

Shadow attacks don't have a definitive type, so maybe it could be hinting towards that. Wouldn't be too hopeful, though.

I couldn't picture a Pokémon actually being shadow type, I mean, not an actual specy.

There isn't a "shadow" type. Shadow Pokemon keep their typing, it's just their attacks that don't have a type.

I wouldn't mind if some of the shadow moves made a return. Shadow Half for instance was a favourite of mine.

Yeah I know, but I thought somebody said that coro coro didn't show us the legendary types because maybe they were shadow.

Nah, it was said that it might be hinting at shadow Pokemon due to the ??? type.

Same thing could be said for the highly speculated Light type. Could Light & Shadow enter-twine? =O

I could certainly see them being shadow tbh. Maybe their real typings are in fact PURE FLYING and pure steel and were just ~corrupted~.

Xerneas could represent Light and Yveltal could represent Dark/Shadow!

Well, that depends on how ready people would be for the entire concept and strategy of competitive battling to change due to the inclusion of the Light type. XD It'll be a huge change, but it'll be a change both welcomed and opposed, I bet.

I agree, if anything the deer looks like it represents peace.

Anything that shakes up the competitive battling scene would be really fun I bet!

I highly doubt that shadow pokemon make a comeback. If they do, they won't in a main series game. They could possibly make a third game extending on the colosseum and XD line... Most likely for the wii u. If shadow pokemon return they will return in a spin off

On the topic of Shadow Pokémon, that (Colosseum, then XD) was my first Pokémon storyline. I admit it. Thought I'd try it for a lark and I found it interesting, moreso than the older generations. Call me a sucker for the graphics. I think I stopped Colosseum at some point and don't know if I finished it, but I did complete XD. In fact, I beat the final boss a few more times! Then I got bored. :D

If there was a specific subquest or something where you could get a tool that let you snag Shadow Pokémon like in those games, that would allow for Pokémon not found in the wild to show up in another party and thus be caught that way (with their evolution families later being found in the wild in a completely different region, perhaps flying to a portion of Unova and finding them, an area that has to include Mistralton as the plane locale unless Nuvema gets outfitted with an airport to the south and becomes a bigger town).

The problem becomes having to introduce a character (a la Miror B.) to collect uncaught snaggables and show up to battle you somewhere. That can be a bit of a tough mechanic to implement, and they probably don't want to do that again.

Besides, there'd have to be an explanation for them in the storyline.

I must say, I would love Miror B to make a cameo appearance.

I don't really think anyone does. It's just an interesting thought really.

Exactly, and it's interesting to note how it could fit!
